Why do artists wear so much glass?
When you think of art glass, what comes to mind is a beautiful white marble, not glass.
But that’s exactly what art glass artist and designer Daniel Schoenfeld wanted to show us.
He’s one of the designers behind a series of glass sculptures that he created that are all inspired by the beautiful and fragile nature of glass.
“I am interested in the way glass can be seen as a form of communication between the artist and the viewer,” he told The Washington Post.
“If you want to see the work, you have to take a step back and see it in a completely different way.”
The art glass sculptures are not meant to be seen in a single moment, but rather a series that is created with different lighting, textures, and angles to show different perspectives.
They are meant to create a sense of distance, and the work is also meant to communicate a different emotion to the viewer.
In the first piece, a human sculpture with the body of a person standing in a room is shown in the foreground.
This is not a traditional glass sculpture, which is often filled with a lot of glass, but the artist took a more traditional angle and created a room filled with glass.
The piece then switches to a human silhouette, with a glass window between them.
“I wanted to use the light of the window to create the sense of the human body as it sits in the room,” Schoenstein said.
In his second sculpture, the figure of a child, with its head resting on a table, is shown next to the window.
The artist created the window from glass that is covered with a piece of paper, and he also used paper to paint the figure.
In the third piece, the sculpture of a human figure, holding a glass, is created from glass as well.
The work of the sculpture, known as “A Woman in Glass,” was created from the same piece of glass as the first one.
In the fourth piece, which was originally supposed to be finished in February, a glass sculpture is shown sitting on a wooden bench.
“Glass is not only a form, it is a way of communicating with others,” he said.
“The piece is meant to convey that the viewer is connected to this person through their glass.
Glass also symbolizes a relationship, an understanding of the world, and that these connections can become more intimate through the glass.”
In the fifth piece, an illustration of a flower is shown hanging on a glass panel.
In a different angle, the piece is shown with a child sitting on top of a glass table.
The final piece, called “A Man in Glass” is a glass work with a tree hanging in the background.
“It is a metaphor for the human being, in the form of glass,” he explained.
“For example, a child can be a child in glass.
A tree, a tree in glass, and glass are all metaphors for the same thing.”
Art glass sculptures like the one above are meant for an audience to take in and to be able to experience a more intimate relationship between the viewer and the artist.
In fact, the artist said that he wants people to feel like they are “connected” to the glass sculpture.
“We wanted to create this kind of experience that is not meant for the artist or viewer to just stand and look at, but that is meant for people to be truly able to understand what it is that is happening in this piece,” he added.
“When I create art, I am really looking for a relationship between people,” he continued.
“When I’m looking at glass, I’m really looking to be with people.”
The artists work is a collaboration with the artist of the same name, and is a project that Schoenfield hopes will become a permanent fixture of the Washington, D.C. art scene.
“I think it’s something we’re all looking for now,” he noted.
“Art is a relationship and the art glass works is a representation of that relationship between me and my audience.
Art glass works are meant not only to connect people to the art, but also to make people feel connected to the artists and their work.”
